IBM
 introduced the idea o a smarter planet.To some, this might nothave seemed the most propitious moment to launch such anambitious strategic initiative. However, we strongly believed there was an opportunity to address exactly the problems and challengesthat were then gripping the world.Now it is nearly two years later and events have, i anything,strengthened this belie. The idea o a smarter planet is speakingpowerully to orward-thinking leaders and citizens around the world. It is opening up a growing global dialogue and generatingthousands o innovative ideas. Hundreds o our clients have seizedupon new capabilities to build smarter systems, and are achievingmeasurable benefts or their companies, communities and cities.Without question, this response is proving benefcial to
